Blended Family Conference
Jesus was part of a Blended Family,
as was Moses and many others in the Bible!
Blended families have many shapes and sizes and the complexity of combining two households with different established traditions usually proves to be very difficult. Understanding the complexities of the Blended Family will help set you up for the greatest chance for success.

"Our two year anniversary was this past weekend and our gift to each other was attending your conference in Iowa. The challenges of being a stepfamily had left us pretty overwhelmed lately. We were feeling like failures and knew we needed godly counsel. This conference was so encouraging and gave us the godly principles we need. We are so grateful! As we have returned home to face those same challenges we do so with renewed strength and a changed attitude. We are correcting our errors and it has yielded positive responses already. Thank you and God bless!!"
"I had no idea how difficult stepfamily life is - nor did I realize that I was inadvertently giving the wrong advice to couples in my church." (This senior pastor's comments reflected many that we've received from church leaders after attending a ministry workshop.) "Now I get it. I understand much better what they need from me."
